Mon Mar 28 2011West Bank Demo Marks Anniversaries of Tristan Anderson Shooting and Rachel Corrie Killing
Residents of the West Bank village of Ni'lin, along with a number of internationals and Israeli peace activists, held their weekly Friday demonstration on March 18th and commemorated the second anniversary of the shooting of San Francisco Bay Area activist Tristan Anderson. Tristan, a U.S. citizen who was volunteering with the International Solidarity Movement in Palestine, was hit in the forehead by a high-flying tear gas projectile during a demonstration in Ni'lin on March 13th, 2009. The projectile was fired against Israeli army regulations, as soldiers shot the canisters directly at demonstrators rather than in an high-arcing fashion. Tristan sustained serious brain damage, and remained hospitalized in Tel Aviv for more than one year and a half. Protesters also commemorated the eighth anniversary of the killing of Rachel Corrie in Gaza on March 16th, 2003 by Israeli occupation forces while she was trying to prevent an Israeli bulldozer from demolishing Palestinian houses.
